Hi all, thought I would share this with you guys and ladies. Christmas, brought me a nice present I have been longing for, for a long time. A very nice .117 air rifle. It's a Turkish' Hatsan break-barrel air rifle. More precisely the MOD 135 HATSAN ARMS COMPANY - AIRGUNS MOD 135 Tomorrow morning I will give this bad boy a "shoot-in" (shoot-out?), but for the moment first impressions are that this is one beast of an air rifle. It weighs 8.8 pounds! And breaking the barrel, is insanely hard for a "its-just-an-airrifle" kind of gun. Seriously, after doing this for about 20 times, I will have a full upper-body workout! I don't know about the power first hand yet, so I have to rely on the producer specs and what some air rifle forums say about it. And it appears to rank among the hardest-hitting. Anyway, I will still need to get myself a scope for it, any suggestions are welcome. And from now on the jackdaw's in the garden will have to watch it! As soon as I am able to, I'll try to get a more balanced and complete overview in the product review section. I'll also try to get some pic's up. Btw, please do not make fun of me and my little air rifle. It's all I can have. :2thumb: greetz and merry christmas to all of you! V.
